Prysmian Group North America announced that it joined the SmartWay® Transport Partnership, an innovative collaboration with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) designed to help companies manage logistics in an environmentally responsible way.
The SmartWay® Transport Partnership currently has over 3,000 members, including shippers, logistics companies, truck, rail, barge and multimodal carriers who rely upon SmartWay tools and practices to track and reduce transport emissions and fuel use while moving goods. Prysmian Group North America will contribute to the SmartWay® Transport Partnership’s goals of saving 215.4 million barrels of oil, $29.7 billion in fuel costs and 103 million tons of air pollution (NOx, PM, and CO2). This is the equivalent of eliminating annual energy use in over 6 million homes.
“Prysmian Group is committed to protecting and conserving natural resources worldwide for its customers, the environment and business,” said Hakan Ozmen, CEO of Prysmian Group North America. “This partnership with SmartWay will help us establish and improve the sustainability of our supply chain by motivating us to implement real-world sustainable practices throughout the organization.”
Last year, Prysmian Group North America announced a similar partnership with Transplace, a third-party logistics provider, to optimize transportation management and improve supply chain visibility. Prysmian Group North America’s latest decision to join the SmartWay® Transport Partnership once again confirms the company’s commitment to sustainable practices and corporate social responsibility.
“Optimizing our logistics programs are one way that Prysmian Group contributes to sustainability,” said Gianmichele Alivia, Vice President of Logistics for Prysmian Group North America. “Following the implementation of Transplace, we are proud to join the SmartWay® Transport Partnership and do our part to minimize the impact to our natural resources.”
